Antioxidant Chewing Gum?
News - Latest raw food and bio living world news
Friday, 17 October 2008 08:01
I haven't seen the commercials so I had to check the Internet for antioxidant chewing gum. I found that this "new" product is actually not so new. An antioxidant gum was introduced about 10 years ago, but no longer appears to be on the market. I did find one that is currently available and advertised as delivering the antioxidant content of two cups of green tea in one stick of gum. The product I found is sugarless, which is a plus, but also contains artificial colors and sweeteners, a big minus.Antioxidant gum is an entry into the $19 billion functional food market. A segment called "functional gums" represented sales of some $600 million per year in 2004, the last year for which I found figures. I also saw that energy gums and appetite-suppressing gums appear to be the products expected to be the big winners in this new and expanding market.As a guideline, I wouldn't depend on chewing gum for the antioxidants you need. Fruits and vegetables offer you far more vitamins and minerals overall, as well as fiber. For optimal health, you need the mix of beta carotene you get from orange and yellow fruits and vegetables, the lycopene from tomatoes, watermelon, papaya and pink grapefruit, the anthocyanins from blueberries and other blue and purple fruits and vegetables, and the lutein, zeaxanthin and carotenoids in carrots and leafy greens. Green tea provides important antioxidants, but it's only part of the whole picture, and chewing gum doesn't offer any real advantage over drinking green tea as a refreshing beverage. If you don't like the taste of green tea, add some citrus juice to it - in 2007, a Purdue University study found that adding lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit juice to green tea significantly boosts bioavailability of catechins, the antioxidants in green tea.Andrew Weil, M.D.

Can Climate Change Make You Sick?
News - Latest raw food and bio living world news
Friday, 17 October 2008 08:01
Yes. In fact in July, 2008, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a report on the impact climate change is likely to have on general health in the United States, and it doesn't paint a pretty picture. Those at greatest risk are residents of the northern states and the Midwest, where people aren't as used to heat as those in other areas of the country. Overall, the EPA's report found that as temperatures rise we may see more:heat strokeillness due to salmonella (due to heat-related contamination of food and water supplies)drowning due to storm surgesheart disease because of rising ozone levelssevere attacks of respiratory diseases including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) because of poor air quality due to ozone and an increase in wildfires.The very young, the very old, the poor, and people with compromised immune systems are most likely to be hardest hit.Another warning, issued in August, 2008, by researchers at the School of Public Health at the University of North Carolina, concerns the impact of climate change on allergy patients. Here, the problem will be earlier and longer allergy seasons with more spring pollen and increased airborne irritants in the fall. More air pollution, ozone and wildfires can also be expected to aggravate asthma, the researchers warned. The review was published in the September, 2008, issue of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.Here are some of the steps the EPA suggested in order to adapt to the anticipated risks:Expand installation of cooling systems in residential and commercial buildingsImprove early warning systems for extreme heatImprove infrastructure to keep water cleanIncreased emphasis on the use of public transit, walking and biking in order to reduce vehicle emission.The North Carolina researchers also recommended eating locally grown fruits and vegetables and eating less meat to improve health and reduce the human contribution to climate change. I see this as a good first step in breaking our dependence on fossil fuels and joining other advanced nations in pledging to reduce our carbon emissions.Andrew Weil, M.D.

No! Pasteurization kills everything beneficial

If you cannot live without buy raw milk from local farms www.realmilk.com

Remember: Casein is the protein found in milk and rennin is the enzyme that is required to break down casein. Rennin is found in the stomach of infants and young children and is lost between ages three and four. Since adults do not have rennin to break down casein dairy products are of no value to human adults. If you have a cholesterol or fat deficiency dairy is the food for you. What about calcium? Calcium is bound to the casein. If the human digestive system is not able to break down casein than calcium is not absorbed either.

Casein is also the strongest wood glue. Delicious!
